Mexican Mario Bros.

How would Mario and Luigi differ in appearance if they hailed from Mexico rather than Italy?

Spanish artist Pakoto attempts to answer that question in his most recent illustration:

Although I consider all five of Pakoto's characterizations to be rather amazing (if a smidge creepy), his Hispanic Yoshi takes the cake.

See this image in its original context here, and see other examples of Pakoto's work here.

Oh, that Toad is freaky! I think their creep factor comes from the eyes...

Yes, the eyes are largely responsible for the image's creep factor. The mouths, too. They all kind of look like zombies, don't they?
